Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
1) Make sure the tape is removed from the new cartridge (and there are no blockages to allow the ink to flow.
2) The heads can become blocked if the printer is not used frequently or if the printer is powered off by other than the printer on/off switch.
3) The printer needs to go through a cleaning/priming cycle when it powers down and if not powered off correctly the print heads can become blocked.
4) To unblock your heads try several cleaning sessions (I.E. 5-7) if not more. Always ensure that there is sufficient ink before the cleaning sessions as the heads can be damaged if you attempt to use the printer without ink. The ink is not only used for printing but as a lubricant for the heads and if your try to print without ink it is equavalent to driving a car without oil. The print head will eventually fail.
IF this doesn't work you may need to use a specialized cleaner for print heads that can be purchased from "Inkjet Cartridge" resellers.
Check your printer for warranty, as they will typically change it without too much hassle.
P.S. Make sure the tape is removed from the new cartridge (and there are no blockages to allow the ink to flow.
